I'm interested to buy a new 3DS XL for my son who will be 7yrs old this may. This is our first time buying a nintendo system for my son. My son is really interested in the mario games. But while doing some online reading on 3Ds my wife has came across few articles which suggests that the 3D feature in the 3Ds is not good for kids eyes. My wife does not want to get one & spoil my son's eyes. Instead she prefers to get a Wii U system for my son so he can play on big TV which would be less harmful to eyes. But I'm interested in the 3Ds just because of the huge games library. I'm too confused reading some of the articles online on this topic.
1. Does Nintendo 3Ds XL hurt kids eyes even if played in the 2D mode ?
2. Is Wii U better than a 3Ds XL (played in 2D mode) for kids eyes since its played on big TV ? portability or price is not a concern for us.
Thanks in advance.
Can some parents who have brought for their kids give their feedback on this?
Appreciate your time. Thanks in advance,
